Father’s Day at home provides endless avenues for celebration. Breakfast in bed, a kid free day of golf, steaks for dinner, you name it and it can probably be done. Father’s Day aboard the USS Nimitz? It looks a little bit different. I am quite certain no one will be delivering my husband donuts in bed and instead of a relaxing round of golf or playing games with our two little girls, he will be working hard on the carrier.
In the search to make his Father’s Day special without a steak dinner, my two girls and I put together a care package to ensure he still felt loved on Father’s Day. Here is what we included:
Handmade by the kids:
No matter what you choose to include in a care package for Dad, it is the thought that will make the biggest impact! Happy Father’s Day to all the deployed Dads out there! We appreciate all you do!
How do you keep the Dad in your life feeling special when they are Deployed on Father’s Day? Have another care package idea? Please share in the comments!
